I Will Respect You
I will laugh with you
and not at you.
I will offer you support,
and not turn you away from me
I will forever love you
and give you no reason to hate me.
I will always think about you
and never forget you in my busy day.
I will hold you close by me
and never abandon your feelings.
I will live in our world
and not get side tracked and lost in my own.
I will give you all that I can give you
and never ever take it away from you.
I will put all my trust in you
and share all that I am with you;
where I will not take anything away from you.
I will open doors for you
and never ever shut you out.
I will never argue with you
but reason with you when we are in that place.
I would like you to be part of my life
and not expect that as partners-
it's your duty.
I will not possess you or control you
like what is natural between us to grow.
If you love me
it is because it is the way you feel,
it is not because
I would want it that way.
